Earlier it became clear that employers’ organizations are organizing a national protest on May 18. The large-scale national protest of the carriers was also announced for this date.

“Fuel and electricity prices have reached unaffordable levels for the majority of non-household consumers. The price chain has led to avalanche of inflation, which with each passing day eats away at the income of every Bulgarian citizen, “said the position of the organizations.

According to them, the state treats the business, from whose taxes it is supported, as a beggar waiting for alms.

They claim that the proclaimed “measures” in support of business are in fact many times less than announced and are extremely insufficient, untimely and ineffective.

“Business does not want help – business wants a peaceful environment in which to earn money, maintain jobs and create goods. The business wants security and predictability of the deliveries and the prices of the raw materials and return with appropriate measures to what is surpassed at the source – the enterprises and the people “, the employers announced in the reasons for convening the national protest.
